ABSTRACT

Cuts, Consolidations, and Savings: Budget of the U.S. Government, Fiscal Year 2013   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Document: "To rebuild our economy and strengthen the middle class, we must create an America where everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same set of rules. We need to win a race to the top for good jobs that pay well and offer middle-class security. That means investing in areas like education, innovation, and infrastructure that are critical to giving every American an opportunity at success and creating a strong economy that is built to last. […] It will take making difficult decisions about reducing funding or ending programs that are laudable, but that in this fiscal environment cannot be funded at desired levels. In the Cuts, Consolidations, and Savings volume, the Administration details the 210 cuts, consolidations, and savings measures that are proposed in the 2013 Budget. These proposals total more than $24 billion in 2013, and $520 billion through 2022. […] Cutting waste and finding administrative savings is not an exercise limited to the Budget process; they are part of a sustained effort--the Campaign to Cut Waste--that the Administration launched this past year to root out misspent tax dollars across the Federal Government. As part of this effort to build a more accountable Government, the Administration already has moved to cut wasteful spending and programs that do not work, strengthen and streamline what does work, leverage technology to transform Government operations to save money and improve performance, and make Government more open and responsive to the needs of the American people."
